Former president Mwai Kibaki is back at the hospital barely two weeks after he was discharged from the Nairobi Hospital, where he was admitted.
The former head of State had an entire floor to himself during his stay at the hospital.
The floor was off-limits, and only specific medics could access him. He felt better, and the hospital discharged him two weeks ago.
However, Kibaki’s health deteriorated, and his family drove him to the hospital on Monday evening the 27th of July 2020. The Nairobi Hospital re-admitted him to the VIP ward, and he is currently under medication.
None of his family members have commented on the matter. However, a source at the hospital disclosed that he is still ailing from what had led to his previous admission.
“Mzee is around being taken care of by his doctors. He has undergone several tests once again to try to establish what could be the cause of the much pain he is in,” the source told The Star.
The source further revealed that the hospital had booked Kibaki under a code name. This was to ensure his safety during his stay at the hospital.
Kibaki was in the hospital last month, complaining of severe pain on his lower abdomen. However, he and his family did not disclose further what exactly he was ailing from.
Kibaki, aged 89, will go down as one of Kenya’s best presidents. He served for two terms from 2002-2007, 2007-2013.
Kibaki’s medical history.
He previously had knee problems, but a South African hospital rectified it in 2016.
Late last year in September, the former president flew to London for health issues. He went through tests following his knee issue rectified in South Africa.
Kibaki also traveled to the United Kingdom in 2002 to seek treatment. This was after he had an accident during the 2002 general elections. The former head of State was still in a wheelchair during his swearing-in as Kenya’s 3rd president.
